Fortnite Special Edition Controller for Xbox One now available

Remember the special Fortnite Xbox One console edition Microsoft introduced earlier this summer? The bundle included a purple console alongside a dark purple wireless controller, both styled after the game’s iconic Storm. If you didn’t pick up one of those bundles because you already own a console, Microsoft has some good news for you: the controller is now available to purchase a standalone item.

The Fortnite Special Edition Xbox Wireless Controller is exactly what it sounds like — an ordinary Xbox One controller that features a velvety dark purple color alongside bright purple button accents with color-coded dots and a bright white Xbox logo. The controller can be used with your existing Xbox One console.

In addition to offering the controller, the product comes with the Legendary Dark Vertex outfit and 500 V-Bucks, Fortnite‘s in-game currency. The V-Bucks, of course, can be used to purchase any item in the Fortnite Item Shop, such as a new emote or weapon wraps.

If you don’t already own an Xbox One or you’re looking to upgrade to one of the newer console variants, Microsoft is still offering its Xbox One S Fortnite Battle Royale Special Edition 1TB bundle, which features the purple controller shown above, as well as a purple console, the Dark Vertex full cosmetic set, and 2,000 V-Bucks.

The Fortnite Special Edition controller is available as a standalone item starting today for $64.99 USD; the full console bundle with controller and perks is available from Microsoft for $299 USD.
